Results and highlights of UFC 282: Jared Gordon loses to Paddy Pimblett in a decision after a struggle with grappling
Pimblett's UFC winning streak continues with a fairly contentious decision on Saturday night.
Gordon made Pimblett pay for his propensity to maintain a high chin early and frequently.
Hard left hooks from Gordon were frequently uncorked, and they attracted Pimblett's steel chin like a magnet.
Despite two judges giving Round 1 to Pimblett, who had his moments, it seemed like he was generally landing the less powerful blows.
The second stanza saw more rivalry. Despite taking some strong shots, neither player was seriously injured. Both guys had their moments.
In a close match, Pimblett scored slightly more crucial and total strikes.
Viewers will disagree about Round 3. For the majority of the round, Gordon kept Pimblett up against the cage, but he seldom connected with any significant blows.
The number of strikes was modest on both sides, but Pimblett scored a few well-placed knees and elbows while facing the fence.
